Carob wood, oil finish
8.5"h x 8"dia.
About the wood:
Carob, a tree from the Mediterranean region, is an exotic
species introduced into Arizona as a landscape tree. The wood
generally is not available commercially and can only be
obtained when a tree is removed. The wood is very heavy, hard
and very colorful. The artist uses only salvaged wood from
discarded trees destined to the landfill or firewood lots.
